TRAVELLER’S TALES – Paris and Morocco - Linton and Kay, Subiaco Gallery.

TUE 13 Mar To THU 5 APR 2018

Official Opening 6-8pm Thursday 15 March. 'I am fortunate to have a small atelier in Paris that I use as a base camp to wander off and sketch and photograph the streets, cafes, buildings, bridges and interiors, often in pencil and oil pastel, before developing the themes and concepts fully in my Australian studio. To explore the Parisian ambiance by day or by night or to sit in a Riad in Morocco and marvel at Islamic tiles, is powerful ammunition for a visual artist. These works do not faithfully copy what lies in front of me; they are feelings and sensations celebrating beautiful and enchanting places.

You may have noticed a change in the look of the website. The pages have been totally revamped, and are now more easily read on mobiles and tablet devices. We have also taken this opportunity to include a section devoted to etchings.
Since moving to Sydney from Bendigo. Ollis has regularly collaborated with Master Print Maker Ann Smith at her printmaking studio in the Blue Mountains. A selection of the resulting etchings are available, for the first time to view on this website. View etchings
